For people who were wondering

Posted , 3 users are following.

So a few days ago i posted about have sharp chest pains i finally got into the doctor and he had a look at me checked my blood presure and my heart and it was fine but he diagnosed me with costochondritis which to be honest i don't know a lot about. He said it will fix itself in a few days or week but i'm worried because its part of the rib cage and wondering if anyone had some advice about it or just some information thank you

    I thought I had this, so I googled it , although I shouldn't but just have a look, anxiety manifests on so many ways its horrible, that's why its hard to say if u have an illness or not sometimes, but if you've had it diagnosed, just do a bit of research on it,☺

    Hey, I went to doctors yesterday, I have same as you, apparently women in there 20's it's quite common. I tried ibropufen but it didn't help with the pain, so the doctor has given me anti inflammatory gel to try

      Since Saturday, I'm hoping it will go away, as it's horrible, plus not my throat is killing, think I'm coming down with something as starting to feel like crap. At first I thought oh no heart attack but the pain actually feels muscular and not as deep down as my heart so I'm not panicking as much as I was, still making my heart race sometimes though

      Mines started thursday night when i felt my heart beating like i could actually feel it without putting my hand on my neck/arm and i'm one who panics real easy so that was me shaking and stuff when a sharp pain happened between my breasts. Is it normal for your back to be sore too? Thats just started today

      Yea, I've had that,but I put that down to the anxiety as now I get alot of tension along my back and back of neck, as anxiety has gone up through the roof with this chest pain. Plus shoulders have been hurting a little today, hope this is helping you a little

      That's a long time to wait, think I had to wait a while but only because they kept making my appointments for when I couldn't get there. Ring samaritans, they are a 24 hour call centre, you can ring and just talk about all your worries, it could help in the meantime
